I say let him dial in the 50 total for one pass and if it doesn't destroy the engine show him the difference in the time slips. I promise you the difference will convince him if the fried pistons don't do it.

Is he normally performance minded without a care for durability? Too much advance will wreak havoc over time, but I don't think it could hurt too much for a pass or two. Then again, I only know what I've read so far. Haven't had the luxury of trying it out yet.

The only time I have seen that kind of ignition timing is on low compression motors. This was popular in Olds motors in the NHRA stock classes. These motors, 403-455, thrived on total advances around 50 degrees. I wouldn't advise it on a small block Chevy!

I have never heard of anyone running that much timing. 40 degrees total starts to make me nervous.

They are tuned exactly the same way. Stroker or not. I have a 302 stroked to 347 inches. Last Saturday I made 13 pulls on the motor on an engine Dyno to tune it. You do NOT do anything "special" just because the motor is stroked. Matter of fact, I don't think the motor knows whether it is a Chevy or Ford.
